Trending…

Picking up where we left off last week, by far the biggest trend was the complete resurgence of gold, and brass finishes…it has been trending the last few markets as manufacturers started to dabble with it, but this time it was absolutely EVERYWHERE….and it truly was THE story of Market….but these are not the brass finishes of old…some are more an antique brass, some are a softer brushed gold finish..

Bernhardt went all in with their Jet Set Collection…

As far as colors….the Greys still have it, as a background neutral and as an accent…

On to colors…starting to see a strong showing of lemon-citrinesas seen below in these pillows by Ryan Studio…it feels fresh, has undertones of green, and it plays nicely with browns from linen to chocolates….

…and who could argue with the entrance of lemon-citrine as illustrated here on the cover of MILIEU featuring Allesandra Branca’s Anna Damask for Schumacher

As I wrote in a recent blog post, I am definitely feeling pinks being increasingly used a strong accent in interiors, and nothing signifies this better than the window of beautiful, vivid parasols at the Moore Councill showroom

CR Laine showed lots of pinks mixed with browns, which is one of my favorite color combos..

So what do you think?? Is ‘gold’ flipping your switch..or not?? Are you bold enough to try the lemon-citrines..or punch it up with some pinks??? Tell us what you think regarding these current trends…
